  • Although many people have offered to send school supplies to Peru, we cannot accept them for the following reasons:
    - The mail service to Peru is not dependable and it is necessary to pay customs fees of up to 100% of the value of the items to release them from the customs office.
    - The money spent teacher packetspurchasing and shipping these items can be better spent on supplies purchased in Peru where they are less expensive.
    -Purchasing locally made products helps the Peruvian economy and ensures that materials will fit into the standardized system of Peruvian education.

  • The only exceptions are new softcover children’s books written in Spanish (not books in English to learn Spanish). Please contact us with questions about this option.
